Same Thing = King Bee ???
Someone please convince me this "Same Thing" instramental isn't really "King Bee." It's one of my favorite tunes. I listen to it all the time. The first thing that came to me when I heard it was - "King Bee." What am I missing? I mean the opening is so identifiable.
Just happened to spin the "Historic" Avalon show of September 16th this morning. Yep, it's "King Bee."

Actual Release Is Available
The Warlocks are not credited, but it is pretty obvious from listening to it that it's the boys.
That has also been officially re-released on "Birth of the Dead".

formative & raw; the windowed glimpse of a band who found the studio to be a tightening tool for material they'd played for years;tweeked & tweeked again. Up 'til this point, short of two years as an entity,their progress is apparent.The material muddies in places, resounds with chaos & rolls along at break-neck speeds & with thunderous momentum. I could hear a troubled beginning with a song like "death don't have no mercy"; but maybe now the flood gate was ready to break. I appreciate the time people have taken to share this wonderful information and music.

Source of these tracks
I haven't listen to these songs yet, but here's what I've been able to discover about the background on them.
McNally's account from the liner notes to Birth of the Dead: "The final studio piece of this puzzle is "Fire In The City," which they recorded with jazz vocalist Jon Hendricks, cofounder of the legendary, Lambert, Hendricks & Ross. Jon had been hired to produce a soundtrack for a movie called Sons And Daughters, which documented one of the early events in the anti-Vietnam war movement, a series of actions in Oakland, California, led by the Vietnam Day Committee in October 1965."
This 98-minute film was released in 1967: "Janet Pugh narrates, and The Grateful Dead, Jon Hendricks, and Virgil Gonsalves provide the music." ~ Dan Pavlides, All Movie Guide.
The film is not listed in the Internet Movie Database (www.imdb.com). Reel one only (of two) is owned by the Wisconsin Center for Film and Theater Research (http://www.wcftr.commarts.wisc.edu/), which gives these notes in its catalog: Technical Credits: Director, Jerry Stoll ; writers, Jerry Stoll, David Castro ; director of photography, Stephen Lighthill ; editors, Sally Pugh, Jerry Stoll, Stephen Lighthill.
